Did you ever look at a picture of yourself...

...and see a stranger in the background?

It makes you wonder how many people have pictures of you, and how many moments of other people's lives we have been in.

Were we part of someone's life when their dream came true?

Or were we there when their dreams died?

Just think, you could be a big part of someone else's life, and not even know it.

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.

Sometimes they die.

Sometimes they walk away.

Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.

The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.

Relationships teach you LIFETIME lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learnt to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

I wanna take this opportunity to thank everyone I know and everyone who knows me. Thank you for being a part of my life... whether you were a REASON, a SEASON or a LIFETIME.
